Just arrived are 4 new Oriental papers that I think are very suitable as endpapers and,or decorative areas of books.
The beautiful swirly patterned papers are Suminagashi dying onto strong oriental paper. The first is a gold and black design on red and the second is a more muted olive in tone - gold and black on cream pattern. They need to be laminated onto another endpaper sheet as the backs are not very attractive.
The other two sheets are Chiyogami papers showing a very tiny repeated floral design in red on white and the second sheet, black on white. They are quite clean on the reverse side so perhaps no need to laminate these.
The code, sizes and prices for these papers are -
SGBR – (Suminagashi red/gold) 50x75cm- $9.00 each.
SGBC - (Suminagashi black/gold) 50x75cm $9.00 each
Chiyogami – 49x64cm -
CHBKF – black floral on white – $12.00
CHRF – red floral on white – $12.00
Hope you like them.
